Happiness Is...The (Almost) Finished Bathroom!

Happiness is a project crossed off the To Do list. In this case, the hall bathroom at our city house. Yep, it's pretty much done! Oh, there's some paint touch up and some shelves to put up over the toilet but it's basically done! First, a side by side comparison:
Here's what I did -

Cabinets restained:

New shower curtain, towels, and rugs:

And art on the walls!

children playing on the beach


 Plus special memories and accessories on the counter:


I am replacing the cabinet over the toilet (my late father-in-law made it for me) with chunky shelves. (It's going to go in my art studio where it will be better utilized.) I hope to get the shelves done this weekend.


Sand between my toes, salty air, the sound of waves. I can almost feel it! One project down!

  2. Gorgeous! I love the beachy theme and how special you made it by including one of your paintings of your children.

    The seahorse above the towel is so pretty.

  8. Oh, what a wonderful feeling to tick this project off your list, dear Cecilia! I love how you redid your bathroom...I think a nautical theme is the best for this room:). And your painting...oh my! It is so sweet!
    Happy Thursday to you!
    Hugs n' love...
